A personalized mobile shopping experience that saves your time and money.
Swaggle is a mobile marketplace for anyone to buy and sell new and pre-owned, quality men’s wear straight from your closet. Our game-changing user interface will simplify the shopping experience so that you spend less time shopping and more time looking good.
Swaggle was created out of a shared problem that the cofounders could not find a solution to. As four young professionals in Washington DC, the cofounders had a hard time finding quality clothes at reasonable prices. They could not afford to buy high-end brands and the lower price point options didn’t suit their professional needs. As an alternative, they looked to consignment shopping and quickly realized that the brick-and-mortar space was dominated by women’s apparel and if men’s clothing was an option, the selection was extremely limited. As a stop-gap solution, the cofounders began swapping and buying clothes from each other and shortly realized the impact a service like Swaggle could have.
Although more men (43%) compared to women (31%) of ages 18-34 shop on online auction sites like eBay (Business Insider, 2015), the current mobile shopping experience is not tailored for men.
There is one area where women are light years ahead of men – fashion resale. The fasion resale industry has exploded in recent years (particular tailored for women) and Swaggle is filling the gap for men. We are introducing an unique shopping experience that is tailored for men and will save our users time and money. We believe by bringing resale fashion to men’s fingertips and establishing ourselves as the central hub for quality and affordable men’s wear, there will be an increase of interest and awareness of resale fashion for men. Swaggle is looking to spark a fire in this space and become the industry leader.
The online fashion resale industry is large yet fragmented, mobile resale is the future. Men are more likely to make purchases on mobile devices.

There are limited opportunities for men to find affodable, fashionable men’s wear. Most consignment shops and e-commerce sites are primarily focused on women’s fashion. As a result, it is much more burdensome for men to recycle unwanted clothes, as well as, purchase new clothes at a reasonable price. Moreover, the typical shopping experience is designed to align with the women’s traditional path to purchase.
Swaggle is the first mobile peer-to-peer marketplace that is designed for men.
